Description

It seems to me that ref shields are not rendered nearly far enough out.

For example, at zoom level 11: http://www.informationfreeway.org/?lat=44.63877830602539&lon=-90.07415783258661&zoom=11&layers=00000F0B0F At this zoom level, the map is just a mass of unidentified roads. At the very least, the primary road should be identifiable on this map. Probably the secondaries should as well.

Similarly, at zoom 12: http://www.informationfreeway.org/?lat=44.75470072546259&lon=-90.0878907397684&zoom=12&layers=00000F0B0F Here, the secondary roads should certainly be identifiable by ref.

And here at zoom 13: http://www.informationfreeway.org/?lat=44.67223658634335&lon=-90.03604901515715&zoom=13&layers=00000F0B0F The tertiaries should be identifiable. But it’s not until you get all the way in to zoom 15 (e.g. http://www.informationfreeway.org/?lat=44.658928852809744&lon=-90.42263035232445&zoom=10&layers=00000F0B0F) that it becomes possible to identify a tertiary road. At this point, you’re pretty much looking at nothing but that road, at least in rural areas.

It should not be necessary to zoom so far in to find out what a road is.

Done, but not quite as far out as you suggested (for rural areas) because of the clutter it caused in urban areas.
